* The levels of performance serve as a reference  and are written at the component, rather than the element, level of our rubric. While providing less detail, the component level descriptors capture all the essential information from those at the element level. These critical attributes, listed in the documents, provide guidance in distinguishing between practice at adjacent levels of performance.  Possible examples for each level of performance serve to illustrate the meanings of the rubric language. However, they should be regarded for what they are: possible examples. They are not intended to describe all the possible ways in which a certain level of performance might be demonstrated in the classroom; those are, of necessity, particular to each grade and subject. The possible examples simply serve to illustrate what practice can look like in a range of settings.
